N-VA adjusts energy market rules
Yesterday, the Parliamentary Committee dealt with the transposition of the third energy package, including many new rules for gas and electricity. Constructive opposition work by the N-VA resulted in the government adjusting many items in its draft. At the end of the day, no fewer than 11 N-VA amendments achieved a majority vote in the Parliamentary Committee. The N-VA paid particular attention to consumer protection. Indeed, proper protection of the consumer is vital if we want to increaseon the market so that families can opt for a cheaper supplier without risk. “Lowering the threshold to give competition a chance on our electricity and gas market is essential for the consumer to get a grip on his or her bill again,” the N-VA stated.
